LIVE from the NYPL: Trevor Noah with Chris Jackson: Born a Crime

Share

March 10, 2017

In his book Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah writes with humor, wit, and tenderness about his life story, from apartheid South Africa to New York City’s Comedy Central, and everything in between. He is joined by his editor Chris Jackson, who  considers the book a celebration of the “power and necessity of laughter even — or especially — in the face of the world’s absurdities and injustices.”

NOTE: Tickets for this event include a copy of Trevor Noah's book, Born a Crime
